When a patient is appropriate for hospice care and has symptoms that can be addressed in an acute care setting, inpatient hospice care may be appropriate. Our 16-bed Hospice House provides care for patients in the final stages of terminal illness. Private patient rooms provide a place for families to spend quality time with their loved ones in a peaceful setting. The Living Room has vaulted ceilings and cozy fireplace. The Family Room provides a place to relax, play a board game, watch tv, utilize the Internet or simply take a break. To the right of the Living Room is a Chapel, it offers patients/families and visitors a place for quiet reflection and prayer. Outside is a Memorial Gazebo, Memory Gardens and a Children’s Remembrance Garden.
